My friend Craig Silverman, former Obama voter and now member of Colorado Jews for Romney (along with me and quite a few others, believe it or not), has an interesting take on the impact on Jewish voters of Romney’s excellently funny and heartfelt performance at Thursday’s Al Smith dinner.
I’d say the more important question, with a likely similar answer to that suggested by Craig regarding Jews, is the impact of Romney’s humor on women. The question is whether any suburban undecided women voters actually saw Romney’s skewering of President Obama. The better Romney did, the less likely any “mainstream” media outlet would play a clip.
Craig’s article for Breitbart.com is HERE.
And here’s Romney’s performance:
If you’re interested, here’s Barack Obama at the same event. I defy even a Democrat to say honestly that he came across as well as Romney. Obama was less funny, more overtly political, and he just can’t help letting his narcissism show through:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
